The September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States will forever be burned into the memories of its citizens. On that same day in 2001, president George W. Bush addressed the nation in an effort to reassure American people of their country’s strength. George W. Bush’s “9/11 Address to the Nation” speech responding to the terrorist attacks on the U.S. was a success for his prhuge inspiration to the country. Bush delivered his speech primarily to the American people, but it was also aimed for the rest of the world to see. Throughout his address to the nation, George W. Bush uses argumentative appeals, as well as, diction techniques to persuade his audience.
The purpose of George W. Bush’s speech “9/11 address to the nation” is to inform the world of the terrors that America faced on that day. He explains throughout his speech how we should always remember those who got their life taken by the people who made this terrorist attack occur. All through his argument speech, he explained all the terrors that happened on that day. “The victims were in airplanes or in their offices: secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror” (Bush 1). He was intending to deliver his speech not only to the people of America, but to everyone in the world to show how much that terrorist attack affected our lives emotionally and physically. He was trying to call the attention of everyone so we can all get together as one nation to be against these terrorists.
George uses several methods of all three argumentative appeals, for the purpose of trying not only to inform his audience but to also to them to be aware of what could come in the future. He uses logos when Bush uses one main example of factual based inflation. This conveys the message surrounding the sense of urgency and suggests the little information ghat is available gives a sense of the unfolding tragedy. “Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes dying into buildings, fires burning, huge — huge structures collapsing” (Bush 2)
There’s numerous examples of pathos- appeals to emotions- found on the speech. He touched on sensitive subject to all of America at the moment he did this speech. The former President also had numerous diction techniques that he used to push to his audience to be aware of the importance of what was happening to the nation. He was trying to show the importance of how we should all bond together to combat against all the madness that went on. He started to use the word “I” to show that he was trying to do everything that would benefit the country in a hard time. In addition, he uses ethical appeals. Bush incorporated ethos into the speech by asking the audience to pray for those who grieve. “Tonight I ask for prayers for all who grieve” (Bush 5). This is ethical because prayer is a part of moral beliefs and using this collectively creates the sense of unity.
George W. Bush employed argumentative appeals to make his address to the nation speech persuasive to all the American people, to reassure the people that the country will be fine.
Night is a memior about Elie’s Holocaust experience with his father. Elie was only 15 when he was sent to the Nazi German concentration camp in Auschwitz and Buchenwald with his father. Though him and his father were kept seperate throughout, they tried their best to see each other. Elie talks about his experience in great details. He claims that the intensity was of the camp was there every second he lived there. Also mentions the struggle for food, as all they had was bread and soup in very little quantity. Before even entering the camp, everyone had tests ran on them. Medical and physical tests. If they failed, they would be killed. Elie says, “We were told to take off cloths and run butt naked to the other side, with great obstacles. I ran and kept running, not allowed to stop.” One of the tests was to run without cloths to the other side without stopping with great obstacles that try to kill you. This was to test how physically fit you were and that was just the beginning of the camp journey.
My chosen genre is adventure because at the end of a journey, it mostly tell you who you are and what you have done represents the type of person you are and how everything around you is effected. An example of an adventure will be traveling a long trip or simply looking at your life as a long journey to enjoy new discoveries and people around you. Also being adventurous makes you understand yourself more and how an adventure can change your life.
The Saw movies are psychological thrillers. These movies involve crazy murder machines and absurdly intricate storylines. According to The Hollywood Reporter by THR staff on the first Saw movie, “Saw boasts an undeniably original premise and clever plot machinations that lift it several notches above the usual slasher-film level.”. All eight movies are ranked from best to worst; 1. Saw (2004), 2. Saw II (2005), 3. Saw VI (2009), 4. Saw III (2006), 5. Saw V (2008), 6. Jigsaw (2017), 7. Saw IV (2007), 8. Saw 3D (2010). The first Saw movie is ranked number one because “Upon revisitation, the original Saw is practically quaint compared to the rest of the series, which levels up the gore and transforms the simple starting plot into a Byzantine rat ,as of interlocking and overlapping narratives.”. Saw 3D was the worst movie because “despite the fact that the franchise had accumulated more than $700 million over the course of six movies, and the fact that 3D cost a whopping $20 million to make, the seventh movie felt the cheapest by far.”.
There’s just something about horror movies that makes a person want to watch it all the time or not at all. It could be the adrenaline rush we get after getting scared or there’s just something about it that terrifies you to even lay an eye on it. Malcom Turvey, director of the film and media studies program explains why we like horror movies so much and what about it petrifies people as he quotes “Some theories argue that for a work to be classified as horror, it has to be threatening, in some way, shape or form ,the monster is often otherworldly or violates the laws of nature” and this could be the reason why people aren’t comfortable watching it because it’s not the norm. But some do enjoy watching it and Marvin Turvey quoted that “Horror films can put us in touch with what we’re really afraid of, which are often socially constructed fears”. This may be the reason we like it so much because we get out of our comfort zones and prepare our minds for the unusual.
ain’t I a women was a speech delivered in 1851 at the women’s right convention Akron Ohio by sojourner truth who was born into slavery . ain’t I a women became one of the most popular speeches in women empowerment and the author swell. in her speech we can see how she explains to the audience several times that there is no inequality between women and men example when says “ I could work as much and eat as much as a man – when I could get it – and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman?” we can also see how she tells her audience that women are as important valuable as mens so they deserve the same rights example”Then that little man in black there, he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him” in her speech she uses ethos as when she said”i have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain’t I a woman?” also ethos because for her its logic for women to have the same rights as mens in her speech she repeats the sentence “ain’t I a women “to prove that inequality between women and men is something that shouldn’t exist.

In the book ,”the sun and her flowers”, Rupi Kaur describes the themes of relationships, self love, culture and healing divided in five chapters which she calls them wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. The book is filled with poems starting with one describing about moving on from a relationship where the narrator still loves the person who left. She describes her life to be drastically different and sad without this person and finds it difficult to readjust, making the reader or this person feel tremulously sorry for the narrator. As the book progresses she slowly heals and soon realizes the self love she needed, as if the person reading it is growing with her. She uses a lot of symbolism in her book starting with the flowers in the title, then symbolizing her healing process as the stages of a growing flower , which are also the names of each chapters. “it isn’t what we left behind that breaks me, it’s what we could’ve built, had we stayed”, this is just one of the poem’s from the first chapter “wilting” describing how she mourns the loss and tries to move on but can’t.
John Keats wrote this letter to his loved one which actually was his neighbor Fanny Brawne as the title said. He was telling her how much he loved her by describing his emotions and telling her that he was insecure of what she actually felt for him. To add, he wanted her to feel the same way he felt that’s why he wrote with a tone of hopeless trying to persuade her to give him or show the same love he shows her, a quote that shows it says “My sweet Fanny, will your heart never change?”. Keats proceeded to achieve that by telling her things that as a lover will make him look more credible and will help him achieve his purpose. The ways he ended the letter when he said “My Love is selfish – I cannot breathe without you” works pretty well because he lets her know that he’ll keep loving her forever and this may had help her understand that he was telling he about how he felt, was real.
